obama had designated part of his stimulus money to nih for the national institutes of health and they were putting a billion dollars to research infrastructure, biomedical research infrastructure, something that's never happened before. she said, you know, we don't have enough space in our section. all of the three units had grown so much that we really needed more space. she said, do you think we could apply for this money? and, so, the three units came together and our goals were one, to be able to fully really advance the science that we're doing by enrolling large diverse groups of study participants and we didn't have enough room to do that. the second was that we wanted to increase the space that we have so we could share collaboratively so we could work together with each other. and the third was really to engage with community. and we didn't have a large community space on-site. and, so, you'll see the space, see the additional clinical space that we've added. you'll see the additional rooms that we've added for conferences, formal and informal gatherings to staff as
. previously i have made statements to the board of supervisors, to the point president barack obama is a sat jan and he has made a deal with the catholic church with serious consequences to the birth -- to israel and our social security. chapter 8, exodus. and the lord spoke to moses, go to pharaoh and say to him, thus says the lord, let my people go, that they may serve me. but if you refuse to let them go, behold i will smite all your territory with frogs. so the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly which shall go up and come into your house, into your bedrooms, on your bed, into the houses of your servants, on your people, into your oftens, into your impeding bowl. and the frogs shall come up on you and all your people and all your servants. thank you. >> president chiu: thanks. next speaker. >> good afternoon. i'm peter warfield, executive director of library users association, and i want to talk about who supports the bernal heights branch library mural being refreshed. we recently had a rally, actually on sunday for the refreshment of the mural. there was good coverage from the nei
that you will see in the bill itself. president obama signed it into law in july. and back in june, i don't think that anybody was expecting that we would actually see this bill come to fruition. but within a couple of weeks following the bill was on the president's desk for signature. the primary issue to point out with map 21, is that it is a two-year bill and it does not fundamentally change federal transportation policy. you can see from the picture on the slide in the corner, that it is illustrative of the politics of the bill. this is president obama at the signing of the bill and you see representatives of teachers
to a two year rolling requirement, and the rational is -- come from the affordable act, president obama's health care bill is merited to go into effect, so it's to ensure that dollars that employers are supposed to put into these accounts go to health care and then the idea was we were going work with your office to determine once these federal regulations that come down, if there are additional changes that be made, if they come down, if you could brief those of us working on this issue, some recommendations that we should think about when president obama's health care law goes into effect, we would love to get that information. >> we will certainly do. >> we'll next ask the district attorney to -- office of the district attorney to present, followed by the treasurer, tax collector and then the city attorney, so welcome. >> good afternoon, members of the committee, i stated in our response to the grand jury report the district attorney opened a preliminary review into possible consumer fraud issues related to the collection of surcharges back in 2011. in that review is still open and p

, that was done with the idea that president obama's health care legislation would go into effect and we would soon be in a regime where i think these issues will truly be mute, so i want to make that point because there is a little bit of confusion about what it is we were doing but from my perspective, what we did put in place provide a lot of requirements for businesses to fulfill in order to make sure that employees are receiving health insurance. that being said to chairman wiener's points, i do have a number of obvious changes to the findings that were recommended to us by the civil grand jury and i must preface this by saying, i respect what the grand jury said, really in part because i don't think the findings reflect the amendments we put into place at the end of last year, if i could start going through the findings one at a time, for finding number 1, about whether the jury could not identify any governmental investigation or any government investigation that reports the number of businesses and surcharges to pay for scho, i suggest the committee state we disagree partially for the
decreased however is the new starts program. they are... it just did not touch of level of the obama administration's presidential proposal a couple of... i think it was a year ago. but it does reform the program to encourage projects which expand the core capacity of a existing major transit corridors. push >> the transportation alternatives program, this is the program that we briefly discussed a few moments ago, basically three pots of funding streams are combined into one and there is a reduction of over 30 percent in the total funding available. bicycle and safety programs are no longer eligible, nor is landscaping as a stand alone project. so the landscaping is eligible, but it is not as a stand alone street scape project. cal transplans to prioritize its share of the transportation alternatives program funds for projects that are already in the transportation improvement program. this includes an $850,000 project for san francisco for pedestrian safety campaign. there was some concern initially because this project is no longer elible under the >> i think that it is approximat

a terribly difficult time and they did not provide the people any money. fortunately with the obama administration this has changed and these people are coming back and being able to be given some money, so on the federal level i think there's some improvement. when it comes to san francisco i think we need to do more, and i would research this further and answer that question later. thank you. >> all right thank you sir. >> i am under the assumption i'm a problem solver. first you have to identify the problem and i would lump this into three groups. you have people who do not want to be helpedda that want to be live on the street. you have people that don't know where the help is and people people that want it and we need to identify the people that want to be helped that can be helped and there are certain people no matter what you do they do not want help. they want to live on the streets and that in turn we should enforce the laws on the books, and that is the only way i believe you can solve the problem. it's not about money. it's about identifying the problem and i believe

. >> something that came in after the agenda, which is gratifying for all of us? that president obama announced that the expansion of the downtown ferry terminal behind us in the if herry building has been identified on his list as two critical transportation projects in the state of california and his plan is to expedite these two projects through better coordination of the federal, local and state governments in order to put americans to work building a 21st century infrastructure and providing california with more transportation choices. and the san francisco downtown ferry project is something that is spearheaded by the san francisco bay water emergency transportation authority. and they have been doing a great job and their project will improve the land side facilities and allow up to 6 new ferry bursts and as many as 10,000 per day, and so they have been working a draft, eir, eif which we hope to see in the beginning of the calendar year and they have been working with the port and partner and bc bc and so that is one of really great things that we see moving forward now in a expedited fa
